I was put on birth control ( oral contraceptive ) after issues of irregular periods or no periods at all, not due to pregnancy. I have been off of the Pill for 6 months and in the mean time TTC. I have taken pregnacy tests each month and all stating negative, including a blood test from the Drs. yet I have not had my period within those 6 months either. My question is - does that mean I do not ovulate and causing my fertility issue? I am only 23, but have never had a consist/regular period and concerns me from a fertility issue.

any suggestions on where to start?
Joel Bernstien, MD responded:
you are correct. MOST LIKELY not ovulating, but it is certainly time to see your OBGYN to get an evaluation to find out what's going on.

Hi! I was in your place last year. 23, went off b/c and wasn't ovulating. (I haven't ever had regular periods either) I've done Clomid and it wasn't right for me, so I switched to Femara and am ovulating consistently on CD14! (Last 3 cycles) I haven't gotten pregnant yet but I know it will happen and I'm sure it will happen for you too! Good luck!
Me-24 DH-37 TTC 1 for 16 months. 3 rounds of Clomid, BFN's. 3rd cycle of Femara, Ovidrel, LP Progesterone. Added IUI this time. Blood test 9/18!
